Cabana Glama is one of Benefit's boxed sets with a tropical holiday postcard themed packaging that I purchased earlier this year.  
The box is relatively sturdy containing the Some Kind-a Gorgeous foundation faker, Hoola bronzer, eyeshadow trio, Posie tint, complete with a mini bronzer brush, double ended sponge and a mirror embedded in the lid.
In terms of the packaging, it feels slightly heavy and bulky, but I really appreciated the little blue strips of ribbon that stuck out underneath products for products to pop out a little more easily.

Some Kind-a Gorgeous Foundation Faker: It is a "cream to powder formula" and apparently "so translucent… it's THE finish for most skin tones".  I have yet to open this to test it out myself, but I will provide an update when I do.

Hoola Bronzer: A cult favourite amongst makeup lovers everywhere.  It's buildable, matte and looks natural; what more could you want?

Posie Tint: A gel based formula tint for the lip and cheeks; because of the formula, you can feel that theres a layer on your lips..however I'm quite particular with lip products so this little thing could just be me.  I haven't tried this on my cheeks, but I do believe as with any liquid products you would apply some on the back of your hands and then apply to cheeks.

Eyeshadow Trio: All three colours are well pigmented, soft and have a satin finish.  As you can see from the swatches, there's a peachy pink colour, an all-over-the-lid brown shade and a darker brown crease colour, respectively.  The colours themselves aren't anything too special, but I'm glad they included the basic shades rather than aquamarine shades they could've used to fit in with the "theme".

P.S. A little overboard with the z's in the names there, Benefit.
